Imagine Peter & The Wolf dropping acid…

…and feeding it into Cinema 4D.

Tobias Gremmler used a modified baton and 12 cameras to capture conductor Sir Simon Rattle’s movements & create these thrilling visualizations:

I created dynamic visuals based on the movements of the conductor and music, and extracted high resolution stills for the visual identity of the orchestra.

It starts with the arms of the conductor forming a hexagonal shape that propagates like sonic waves in linear space. When the music becomes louder, the linearity gets bended by the motion of the baton, which results more complex visual arrangements. Textures, colors, materials and lights are inspired by classical instruments (wood, brass, wind, strings) and the atmosphere and architecture of classic concert halls. In the last sequence, the conductors motion turns into strings. The waveform of the sound adds to the form of motion, like mixing audio waves.
